Days of Heaven (1978)
When three drifters take refuge from the world at large on the land of a lonely rancher, they all find their private paradise threatened by unspoken secrets and lies. Terrence Malick’s second film, stunningly beautiful both visually and emotionally, was filmed by cinematographer Néstor Almendros, who won an Academy Award for his striking, bucolic imagery of the plains of the Texas panhandle.
